Train services in and out of London Waterloo will be disrupted until the end of the day due to signalling problems, National Rail has warned.

Earlier today, a signalling problem which was affecting platforms 5 to 9 at London Waterloo was fixed, and trains are again able to use these platforms.

However, a further signalling problem has occurred meaning trains are unable to use platforms 1 to 4 and platforms 12 and 13.

Trains may be cancelled, delayed by up to 20 minutes or revised to start / terminate at alternative stations.

The disruption is now expected to continue until the end of service.

The routes affected are those between Waterloo and the following:

  • Hampton Court
  • Shepperton
  • Twickenham
  • Epsom
  • Chessington South
  • Alton
  • Weybridge
  • Basingstoke
  • Reading
  • Guildford
  • Portsmouth Harbour
  • Southampton Central
  • Weymouth
  • Exeter St Davids
  • and the London Waterloo circular services

Customers have been advised that their tickets will be accepted on Great Western Railway services between London Paddington and Basingstoke via Reading; London Buses between Chessington, Surbiton and Raynes Park; London Underground services on any reasonable route; and Southern services between London Victoria and Dorking.
